Book Blurb:

An Exiled Princess.
An Ancient Tribe.
A Dangerous Stranger with Unknown Loyalties.

Dinah, the former Princess of Wonderland Palace, has been chased into the wilds of Wonderland after the brutal murder of her brother and the ruin of her impending crown. Now, as her half-sister Vittiore sits on the throne beside her Father, the brutal King of Hearts, Dinah finds herself alone in the forbidding Twisted Wood with only Morte, a homicidal beast, for company.

Hunted by the King and his army of Cards, Dinah struggles to evade those who long for her head, including Cheshire, the King’s clever advisor, who is slowly tightening his grasp around her. Spurred on by her rising terror, the former Princess finds herself at the center of a web of conspiracy reaching far beyond the Palace and deep into the mysterious Yurkei mountain tribes.
Even with the balance of an entire Kingdom at stake, Dinah knows something that her allies and enemies do not: that the most dangerous conflict of all has already begun as she battles the enticing rage that beckons her ever closer as love slips further from her grasp.

The second book in the bestselling and award-winning Queen of Hearts Saga, The Wonder takes readers back to the most wondrous and curious places in Wonderland, and continues this darkly addictive tale featuring one of the most infamous villains of all time.

But be warned…not every fairy tale has a happy ending.
This is the story of a princess who became a villain.

My Review:

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Colleen Oakes has done it again!  She has captured my attention full force and created another wonderful story in the revealing tale of how the Queen of Hearts came to be.  If it is possible this book is better then the first.

Like in the first book so much happens to Dinah and some unbelievable secrets get revealed.  When we first encounter Dinah this time around she is exactly where she was when we left her in book one, on the run.  While on the run she meets a surprising ally as she travels to the Yurkei Mountains, and wait until you meet them! And Dinah must learn to defend herself and survive.

As I said more is revealed in this tale, but to get into it would reveal a story this is definitely worth the read.  You will be surprised as you learn more about Cheshire who I admit in the beginning made my skin crawl.

Once I started I couldn’t put it down.  There is still one more book in the series and I wish I could pick it up right now!Jessica

  1. I happened upon your review as I was searching for more on this book. I too just recently read and reviewed it, and I agree with your love of this book. I absolutely adore this book. I want the whole series to read NOW. FOREVER. If Goodreads let me, this thing would have a 20/5 rating. I’m afraid to say anything about the plot or things that happened–don’t want to spoil it for others–but AH! One thing: Caterpillar was probably my favorite scene.

    What I love most is that she’s true to Lewis Carroll while making his classic new and accessible. I expect great things from this series.
